River Valley Bluegrass
Here we are in mid summer and the River Valley Bluegrass Jamboree. This has become our community's rare claim to fame. Before this there was only logging, the train going through the middle of town and some mineral exploration. Now there is less logging, no more train ( they tore up the main CN line) and lost of mineral exploration BUT still only a hope for riches in minerals.
Here is the agenda for the week. http://www.northernbluegrass.com/rv_bluegrass_jul30.htm

This is a local Bluegrass group, Honeygrass, on the stage at the Bluegrass Park.
I am not a big fan of this musical event. Spending a weekend in a tent and trailer slum with beer drinkers and smokers is not my idea of a good time. I do get to hear some of the music. In the evening, I can hear it in the park a mile down river from my place.
Bluegrass lovers come from far and wide. Some seem to follow the festivals around the countryside throughout the summer. Much of the entertainment come up from the US.
People do seem to have a good time.
In a week I can once again enjoy Nature's night sounds especially the Whip-poor-Will.
